Video also appeared on YouTube from KMBC9 from the Thanksgiving meals handout with Mathieu helping out and posing for pictures with fans. Judging by the clip, a good time was had by all.


The NFL star has a history of doing this at Thanksgiving time, with his first give away to the KC community dating back to 2019, noted.

He also gave away turkeys when he was in Arizona and Texas and played for those NFL teams.
